Eli was a great Giant...I go back to YA Tittle days..1961-64 when YA Lead us to 3 successive NFC east titles..but we lost 3 successive NFL championships back then. He was terrific..just short lived as he retired after the horrible 1964 season. Eli was different.
The 2 super bowl wins showcased Eli at his best...the Tyree and Manningham passes will go down as the best clutch passes in SB history, certainly Giants history. So many great memories...beating Dallas in the SB 42 run...Beating GB in both SB runs in Lambeau Field...so many 4th qtr comebacks...sure there's also a lot of picks, fumbles, left hand throws, clock mgt issues...etc, but, he had more longevity I think than any other Giant..and never really missed a game...class act on and off the field who will be sorely missed.
Congrats Eli and may God bless you, Abby and family...thanks for the great career and a plethora of great wins. I hope your number is retired. "Once a Giant, always a Giant".
Thank you for the 2 Super Bowls. Thank you for being an iron man. Thank you for being clutch. Thank you for being a class act. Thank you for 16 seasons. Thank you for being a Giant! Thank you, Eli Manning!

Thank you Eli for all the memories! Two of the greatest Giants moments of my life! Bragging rights forever over the stinking Patriot fans! You were class all the way, tough as nails, and one of my favorite Giants of all time! Enjoy your retirement until the Hall comes calling!
Don’t know what you got till it’s gone....I salute you Iron Manning, your career gave me bragging rights, and belief any given Sunday for many years you would pull a rabbit out your hat to secure a victory against all odds. Wish you could’ve rode into the sunset with one more chip.Nevertheless your class, and ability to give your all to this organization and fans was special. You will be missed, and I think I speak for the homers and haters.

Without question Eli is one of the most important GIants players in its franchise history. We have been fortunate to have watched him for many years and he manned the position with utter professionalism and was/will be a great amassador for the team and the NFL throughout his retirement.
Thanks for the memories Eli! You've given me and all of us some of the best memories any sports fans anywhere could ask for. Best wishes to you and your family for eternity.

Can't believe somebody did the work to compile all of those TDs Eddie!
That 2005 season......man........we had a good squad that year. That inexplicable kicking performance by Jay Feely missing 3 FGs versus Seattle.......we had that game. Kind of started the mini-downward spiral. Not to mention we had 6 LB injuries in the last freaking 4 games that ruined the defense. Was the beginnings of what would be some terrific memories!

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
